Federal Judge: State Department provided ‘clearly false’ statements to derail requests for Clinton docs

FOX: In a combative exchange at a hearing Friday in Washington, D.C., a federal judge unabashedly accused career State Department officials of lying and signing “clearly false” affidavits to derail a series of lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth also said he was “shocked” and “dumbfounded” when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton’s server, according to a court transcript of his remarks.

“I had myself found that Cheryl Mills had committed perjury and lied under oath in a published opinion I had issued in a Judicial Watch case where I found her unworthy of belief, and I was quite shocked to find out she had been given immunity in — by the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case,” Lamberth said during the hearing.

The Department of Justice’s Inspector General (IG), Michael Horowitz, noted in a bombshell report in June that it was “inconsistent with typical investigative strategy” for the FBI to allow Mills to sit in during the agency’s interview of Clinton during the email probe, given that classified information traveled through Mills’ personal email account. “[T]here are serious potential ramifications when one witness attends another witness’ interview,” the IG wrote.  read more

  1. And yet in all of this, congressional oversight issued no referrals for further investigation of Mills. They remind me of those commercials about security systems — they don’t stop of burglary, they just monitor them.

  2. “Untouchables”
    “Beyond Good and Evil”

    DoJ is a cesspool of cowardice and corruption.

  3. I am shocked. No, no not that any leftoid aparatchik committed perjury to cover for another communist’s crime. I am shocked a federal judge actually exposed it.

    Cut it to bare bones or eliminate its funding completely. Enforce the 1954 Communist Control Act.

  4. Brought to you by the same people who gave immunity to Podesta to testify against Manafort for doing the same things he did.

    Let’s just give immunity to every Democrat before we interview anyone.

    Republicans violate the law and are prosecuted. Democrats are awarded amnesty as they stonewall.

    Don’t think we don’t notice Mueller, Rosenstain, Comey, et al.

    And what are you going to do about it, loyal citizen? What are any of you, loyal citizens, going to do about it?

    That is the lesson to be learned. Repeated. Because you ineducable peasants keep forgetting. Now, get back to work. The economy’s booming, and there’s islands, planets, that need refurbishing.
